Here's the final patent, with diagrams:

BTW I've written Patents but still don't like reading them... The first one I did was just me writing it and bouncing it off a guy at the Patent Office who would suggest appropriate legal terms I should change the simple bits to ("is operable to" being my least favorite). I believe it's still on the wall in the boardroom at my old firm, even though they went bust last year.

I'd be surprised if the Patent was that explicit about where the control unit was, as that would make it easier for people to work around it. At the very least they would have claims for on and off sensor control hardware if they did specify it. I'm out of time for today though, so the above will have to last people for a while...
